2019 Appanoose County: The Morris Brothers

Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame Inductees

2019 Appanoose County: The Morris Brothers

 

The Morris Brothers provide trucking for the County Fair Livestock Auction free of charge to lessen the burden for 4-H members, which is greatly appreciated by all.  In addition, they have organized the carcass contest and weighing before county fair even begins for many years. 

The Morris Brothers are often found at the fair throughout the week helping any young person that needs assistance, offering guidance, advice or a friendly smile.  The Morris Brothers all display a sense of protecting the integrity of the Appanoose County 4-H Program and its members. 

With their own businesses, Morris Brothers Cattle and Morris Transfer, they are leaders in the community.  The Morris Brothers are advocates for all farmers in Appanoose County and provide a positive example to Appanoose County 4-H members.  The Morris Brothers have been found assisting widows and/or farmers with serious health concerns, volunteering their time and trucking services as well as organizing others to help in any way needed.   

With a new generation of “Morris” family members becoming adults and having been instilled with these values, which began with Neil Morris, Appanoose County 4-H looks forward to many more years of support and partnership with the Morris Family.
